When it comes to the process of recruiting new employees or developing and promoting the existing ones for new openings in your organization; interviews and resumes are not enough to give you the whole picture. Undoubtedly, a candidate’s experience, qualifications, and references offer insight regarding their knowledge and past experience. Yet, one of the most efficient methods to get proper insights into the candidate’s capabilities and proficiency is to carry out an assessment of their skills.
In the simplest words, a skills assessment is performed to evaluate whether an individual has the aptitude to bring off peculiar skill or skillsets. Most commonly, it’s an assessment of skillsets peculiar to a job position. Theoretically, the evaluation records the level of excellence for individual skill, to help you identify which participants are at the beginner level and which ones have advanced proficiency for the peculiar skills.
There are various techniques and resources to carry out skills assessment, for example, you can perform the evaluation in person and/or online through mockup tests, questionnaires, and observation. For instance, the skillsets for “managing project risks” may be evaluated with the detailed prerequisite: “Skilled to spot and catalog risks and speculations linked to the projects. Contemplates the effects on the entire system while pinpointing risks. Cooperates with team members and interested parties to formulate strategies for dealing with the risks and corroborates incorporation of participation from all major stakeholder groups. Comes down with contingency plans and catalogs them in order to lessen or alleviate the risk factors.” The status of skillsets could be evaluated with competency indicators of: “Limited,” “Basic,” “Intermediate,” “Advanced,” or “Expert.”
Nonetheless, you might be preferring to perform systemized, unbiased evaluations, in order to have a reliable comparison of the results gathered from all the evaluations. A large number of companies employ a skills management system like eSkill™, to generate and send online skills evaluations conditional to the job position(s) across the organization.
